 Group admin 
Welcome to Round 2 of the 2014 Middle Earth MocOlympics! First off, thank you to all the contestants who entered this year.

Moving on to the matchups, categories, and required materials. Before you read any further, though, I suggest you return to the Rules Topic to refresh your memory. We don't wish to DQ anyone for forgetting a rule and such.

Round 2 will end on August 9, 2014.

Required Materials:

For Round 2, please make sure you have the following materials in your entry.

Title:
Please title your entry:
MEMO Round 2: [Your name] vs. [Your Opponents Name]

Please include a working link to the group in your entry. Also, a link to your opponent's page should be included, if you should enter after your opponent. A link to your creation should also be included in the appropriate thread.

Please also state your category and bracket at the top of your entry.

Now, here are the R2 matchups and categories!

Bracket One
---
Bracket One's theme for Round 2 is the Lord of the Rings.
---
J-Rod Smith vs. Sean-Thomas Mahoney
Category: The Bridge of Khazad-Dum
Build the scene for the Fellowship of the Ring where Gandalf defends the Fellowship from the Balrog of Morgoth in the Mines of Moria.

The Dunedain98 vs. Mariner 3000
Category: Osgiliath
Build Osgiliath from one of the two moments in the Lord of the Rings. You can choose to build your model after the ruined and orc-overrun version, or the past version where Boromir and Faramir have recently won a battle.

Reese Hawthorn vs. Finn Tegotash
Category: A Shortcut to Mushrooms
The Hobbits, on their journey, have encountered a ringwraith! Build the scene where the servant of Sauron attempts to hunt down Frodo and the ring in the forest.

Thomas B. vs. Kai Bernstein
Category: The Lighting of the Beacons
Pippin must light the Beacons of Minas Tirith in order to help save the city from the forces of Sauron.

The judges in Bracket One will be Halhi 141, A. J. S. and A. Sargent.


Bracket Two:
---
Bracket Two's theme is The Hobbit
---

Ranger Elegost vs. J D
Category: Goblin-Town
The dwarves company has been captured by the Great Goblin (or the Goblin King, if you're going by the movie) and taken before him. Build the shabby town of the Goblins.

Nathan Pownell vs. Brick Madness
Category: Roast Mutton
The dwarves have been captured (this is getting familiar) by three trolls in the woods! It's up to Bilbo and Gandalf (mostly Gandalf) to save them.

Joseph Tyer vs. Drew Johnson
Category: The Green Dragon Inn
The dwarves are setting off on their journey, and it begins at the inn in the shire, the Green Dragon.

Graeme Straughn vs. Jake Andrews
Category: Lake-Town
The dwarves are finally getting a warm welcome in the sea-village, Lake-Town. The busy town is led by the Master of Lake-Town, but Bard might be coming to that position soon enough...

The judges in Bracket Two are A M, David, and KW Vauban.

Good luck!

Remember that everything can change at the drop of a hat in a contest. Just because your opponents are known to be skilled builders doesn't mean you're destined to lose to them. They might not have time to build to their previous standards or even enter at all. Build your best and see what happens!

I'd take an additional 3 hours any day, regardless of how late I'm staying up. But that's just me. Because I have practically no time during the week. :P

If you should enter after your opponent. A link to your creation should also be included in the appropriate thread.


I'm not quite sure I know what you mean by this, but I added a link to my opponents page, entry, and a link to the group homepage in my creation. But since you said thread I'll post this just to be safe. http://mocpages.com/moc.php/394119 My entry: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/394008 My opponents entry.

Just tell me if anything in my creation needs editing. :)

Hey judges would it be okay if I download a pic of my build, just to prove it's completed, then upload the high quality pics later? It's just that I'm not going to be at home most of the day and I don't think I'm going to be able to get them up before 12 tonight :-/

My collection is almost exhausted and 2/3 of my masonry pieces are being used in a WIP. Be prepared for decent rocks...and horrific (not to mention incomplete) everything else. :P
